[8.0] "The Ultimate Warrior is one of my all-time favorites. He is pretty much a perfect wrestling character. He would always come running to the ring with face paint and over-the-top attire, usually squashing his opponents in a matter of minutes. He gave off the aura of a superhero -- not like a Hogan/Cena superhero, but more of a supernatural hero. He might be the most charismatic wrestler ever, as he was an expert at working a crowd. His rambling promos were strange, but awesome, as I feel they added to the mystique of the Warrior. Although he's one of my favorites, I can't give him a ten because, to be frank, his ring work was ass. If he had worked his ass off to become good in the ring like his best friend Sting did, he would be rated a 10 as well."

[6.0] "The Ultimate Warrior is on of the most enigmatic superstars in Sports Entertainment History. Te Ultimate Warrior is also one of the most controversial superstars in Sports Entertainment History. The mans wrestling ability was nothing to go on about, He was very very very limited in the ring. The warrior only put on maybe a few good matches in his whole career and that was not because of Warrior but because he had someone opposite of him who was better or it was just under the right circumstance. Despite that i am no fan of Hulk Hogan or Warrior the Wrestle mania 6 Match is a classic. It is fun to watch and has a lot of energy and hype. Also when Warrior stepped into the ring with a guy like Rick Rude, Rude would make Warrior look like a million bucks. His mic skills were intriguing and for better or for worse it was something you could help but watch and listen to. I will say that The Ultimate Warriors incoherent ramblings while not necessarily good were fun and really helped build the legend of The Ultimate Warrior. While i am not so sure what Warriors gimmick was what i do not is it came off to me like a crazy comic book hero. The Ultimate Warrior was a real life super hero jumping off the pages of a comic boom capturing the imagination of children everywhere. I believe the best part of Warrior's whole shtick was the attire. The colors, the tassels and all the creativity. I loved the face paint and it was just a part of creating that mystique and intrigued and it really put him over the top. While i have said many good things about Warrior i will have to justify my 6 point rating by saying that his terrible in ring work really was a huge detriment to him and his so and so mic skills. Not to mention is attitude which seemed so negative at times and a guy who in my opinion truly did not have an understanding of how to wrestle and had little respect for the business."

[10.0] "I don't get the low rating, this guy was an icon in the ring, he inspired so many great wrestlers of today. Sure his promos were just him yelling but it worked for him and made his promos more intense."

[4.0] "Probably the most intense wrestler of all time, The Ultimate Warrior was what you call an energizer, he had the look and was completely over-the-top and that's the only reason he became a star. I was never a fan of his character, I always felt it was 'too much", seeing him talk to his gods and everything felt pretty silly for me but at least he entertained crowds and was a big draw, I guess. Because a man must have some star power to be at the top with such poor wrestling skills. He was a terrible wrestler, I would even say embarrassing, he used to do the same old boring moves every time and without his ability to entertain and get the crowd nuts, his matches would be simply unwatchable. The Ultimate Warrior was one of those guys who don't deserve everything they get, who are given too much power and burry other much more talented guys with their unwillingness to let them go ever. But for Vince McMahon, money has always been much more important than passion. If not for his cultural impact on the sport, the rating would be much lower."

[5.0] "His in-ring work was often hideous and sometimes very sloppy, yet his match with Savage at WM7 will always be on my top five. His promos were nonsensical and often rambling, but it worked. Warrior invested much into his character and became one of the more unique and charismatic wrestlers of his or any other era."
The Chosen One wrote on 11.06.2016:
[2.0] "Yes Ultimate Warrior may be a legend and may have some charisma but that does not make up for his horrible promos and in ring ability. He had one of the worst finisher and signature moves in the classic era. In my opinion he didnt deserve to unite the IC Championship and World Championship let alone win either of the championships. He gets two points for having insane charisma."
Mean Smark Callous wrote on 13.04.2016:
[7.0] "Would love to give him a higher rating because he is my all time favorite, but being objective, the guy was just not a good wrestler. extremely limited moveset, known to be dangerous to work with (many of his peers have complained about his lack of professionalism) and worst of all, flaky, would just simply no show whenever he felt like it. BUT his gimmick, attire, and promos were all awesome. yes I know his promos were gibberish that's why I loved them cuz the guy was just batshit crazy. Like I said, I want to rate him higher but he was just not a very good wrestler. if it wasn't for his epic gimmick and being permanently over for eternity he'd get a much lower rating."

[8.0] "Love him or hate him, The Ultimate Warrior made wrestling entertaining. Warrior began to cut his teeth in WCCW as The Dingo Warrior; earning both the Texas Heavyweight Championship and WCCW's World Tag Team Championship with Lance Von Erich shortly after joining on. This helped Warrior attract the attention of the WWE, who brought him on to become the next WWE superstar. Though his ability to work safely was in question, Warrior became a popular WWE Intercontiental Champion due to his charisma alone. As the 1980's turned into the 1990's, Warrior had his "moment" at WrestleMania VI where he defeated Hulk Hogan to secure the WWE World Championship. Yet as his star was on the rise, Warrior found himself in disagreements with the WWE over finances and was fired after SummerSlam '91. Though Warrior was brought back for WM VIII, he was entered into embarrassing programs before leaving again by year's end. Warrior wrestled for the WWE a final time in 1996, but problems arising from finances saw him depart once more. Warrior then went to WCW to feud with Hogan, but the results were ill received by the fans and somewhat soured his legacy. Just the same, Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at WM XXX; where he managed to eulogize himself on RAW not 24 hours before suffering a fatal heart attack. Though his passing is viewed in sadness, only Warrior was capable of eulogizing The Ultimate Warrior - And both will live on in the Heavens FOREVER!"

[10.0] "One of a kind, maybe the greatest character pro wrestling has ever seen. The intensity he brought to his matches from the minute he exploded down the ramp way is unmatched. Was never going to chain wrestle and put on a clinic but his matches were always entertaining"
